First Parish is Going Solar!

Name the Solar Panels

A Special Fundraising Drive During February

A special fundraising drive to raise $125,000 for the installation of solar panels. The objective is to have funding secured by the end of February and to start the project shortly thereafter.

There are two important elements of this special fundraising drive. The first is to secure full funding for the solar panel installation. In addition, we want to provide everyone with the opportunity to participate in this gift to future generations, demonstrating our parish commitment to adapt our building to today’s environmental realities without sacrifice of its historical building identity.

The Name Our Solar Panels fundraising drive provides you with the opportunity to register your support by helping to fund the solar panel installation. Consider how you will add your name to several, one or a portion of the cost of a panel ($1,500). Donors will be recorded on a plaque that will be displayed inside the church.

  • Named panel
    • Whole $1,500
    • Half $750
    • Quarter $350
  • A gift to the future $100 to $349
